The Staggeringly Good Commitments: Making Waves Film Festival

March 30 @ 6:30 PM 10:00 PM

Step back in the 1990’s world of The Commitments…but in Pompeytown – a live cinema experience.

Pompeytown is abuzz with the news of a high-profile music competition offering a record deal. On this special night at the Staggeringly Good Brewery, the community gathers for the ultimate gig.

Join us for Portsmouth’s first live cinema experience set around the screening of Alan Parker’s hit 90’s musical classic The Commitments.

Step into our story world. Show off your musical talents and take part in the live auditions for a place in the band or just sit back and vote for the best singer.

Dress to go back to the 90’s, dig out your scrunchies, double denim, baggy checked shirts, crop tops, leggings and doc martens.  The best dressed person will win a prize on the night.

Mingle with familiar characters as they prepare around you for the night of their lives. See The Commitments film where Jimmy Rabbitte and the band become saviours of soul and party the night away to Pompey’s own amazing live band, The Soul Suspects.


  • Early Bird £25 Students/concs £20
  • On the door £30

All tickets include a £5 screening fee to see The Commitments during the live experience.


Don’t miss out and become committed.
